NCDS Hosts Artists in Residence Program
Newton Country Day’s Artists in Residence Program, focused on slam poetry and co-sponsored by the Theatre Department and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, kicked off on Monday, April 27. Through May 20, Poet Laureate of Boston Porsha Olayiwola, Austin Poetry Slam Champion Andre Bradford, and 2018 Natick Poetry Slam Champion Beth Aarons ’89 will perform and host a Theatre Intensive program for interested Upper School students.

Students who choose to participate in the Theatre Intensive will learn to write, edit, and perform their poems over six workshops with our guest artists over Zoom. At the conclusion of the workshops, students' final performances will be recorded and used as a part of our Virtual Festival of the Arts video, premiering on Thursday, May 7.
